2021 Lovlipon Glenfiddich becomes an AKC CH!
With the help of our dear friend Amelia, Glen became a AKC champion in 2021. Glen had already achieved his Swedish championship before coming to our kennel and
now has added this achievement to his credits. He has become a treasured stud in our kennel.
We couldn't be more proud to announce the achievement of Zaralyn at Westminster.
Proudly owned and loved by Linda Khettry.
Zaralyn featured in the NY Post!!!!
Zaralyn is in the NY post today as part of a feature story on Westminster entries. Her owner, Linday Khettry is so excited to be part of Westminster this year and and we are so proud of Zaralyn and Linda!

This vivacious 3-year-old’s name is Polish for “black princess,” and the Polish lowland sheepdog does indeed live like royalty, splitting her time between her family’s Central Park South apartment, where she enjoys taking in the views from a 17th-floor balcony, and a sprawling home in Ridgewood, NJ, with a 1-acre yard. “She is a princess, she really is,” says owner Linda Khettry, 62.
The high-maintenance bitch even spends every Friday at the beauty parlor, to keep her shag in shape. When not showing, Zaralyn typically wears a barrette to keep her lustrous locks out of her eyes; when competing, her hair must hang freely, and her signature look is a rakishly charming sidesweep, where her hair is pulled back to reveal just one of her eyes.
While her breed is rare in and of itself, Zaralyn is especially unique because she’s black, not white. “She’s the only one in the country,” claims Khettry, who calls herself a “professional volunteer.”
Zaralyn also has a family connection to Westminster: Her father won Best of Opposite (the award for the best animal of the opposite sex of the Best of Breed winner) and an award of merit three years ago. “Zaralyn hopes to follow in his paw print,” says Khettry.
